What Fit Kids is All About:
For a lot of kids, the after school bell is a sound symbolic of after school junk food and video games until their parents finish the work day. At BOMB Fitness, we offer a healthy alternative.
Physical fitness plays an important role in your child’s development, which is why we offer an escape from traditional after school programs whose only focus is babysitting. We’re not a daycare, nor do we babysit children. We offer after school fitness classes to area children with the convenience of picking them up from their schools to participate in fitness based programming.
At BOMB Fitness, your child has the opportunity to explore and grow, create and discover, build relationships with peers, and become confident learners within an active environment.
What Age are our Fit Kids?
Our after school program is geared toward children aged 4-10. While some of our programming spans all ages to promote cooperation and teamwork, some classes and activities split in order allow older children to learn additional skills.
We pride ourselves on our safe and friendly atmosphere where children can express their creativity within a structured setting. We do our best to make sure every child has a positive experience. Our aim is for the children to forge strong relationships with one another while receiving positive encouragement from the staff.
What your Kids Should Expect:
They’ll be picked up every day at the end of school by the same staff member who walks your child and a handful of others back to the gym to wait for the fun to start. In nicer weather, we may stay at the school to play before returning to the gym.
From the time they walk into the gym until around 4:15, kids have the chance to enjoy their after school snack, decompress, and mingle with the other kids on the main floor.
At 4:15, we tidy up all of the gear on the main floor and head downstairs for class. Classes run for 30-45 minutes based on the energy of the kids that day and include a series of active games, kids yoga, exercise cards, obstacle courses, relays, and challenges. At the end of class, kids participate in a short stretching routine that they learn to teach to their peers over the course of the program.
At 5pm, kids have free time to build on the activities learned in class, read quietly, colour, finish homework, and just be kids.
What Will my Child Gain from this Program?
Our after school Fit Kids program teaches your child to:
- Be confident in their daily lives

- Improve their concentration and focus
- Set and achieve goals
- Show courtesy and respect

How do Children get to our After School Program?
We have three escorts who make daily pick-ups from school as soon as they have been dismissed. Students are escorted on foot to our facility from:
- Earl Haig
- Earl Beatty and Saint Brigid
- R H McGregor
When are After School Activities Scheduled?
Our after school program is offered full time, Monday to Friday. We may accept part-time students, space permitting. Parental pick up is by 6:00pm. Registration begins in April for the following term beginning in September. Enrollment is for the school year, September until the end of June. However, acceptance may be considered throughout the school year, if space is available.
What you probably want to know before leaving your kids with us:
- There are never less than 3 staff on site during Fit Kids times.
- There are never more than 18 Fit Kids participating in the program on any given day.
- All staff are trained in CPR and First Aid.
- While we are really, really nice, we will charge you $10 if you’re late for 6pm pick up.
What about snacks?
Because of the unique dietary restrictions/preferences of each student, we ask that parents provide a snack for their child. We have refrigerated and non-refrigerated space for each child to store their snacks.
Tuition for the Fit Kids program is $330/month ($16.50/day) +HST for the 2015-2016 academic year.
An additional child from the same household will receive a 15% discount on tuition -- $280.50/month + HST.
Cost includes walking transportation from RH McGregor, Earl Haig, Saint Brigid, and Earl Beatty.
A non-refundable deposit equivalent to 1 month's tuition is due in order to secure your spot. It will be used toward June's tuition. 9 post dated cheques payable to "BOMB Wellness" are due on or before the first day of school.
Part Time Attendance
Space permitting, we may accept students on a part time basis at a rate of $20/day.
PA days run from 8:30am – 5:30pm at a rate of $55 per day (optional). All full time kids are welcome to attend special PA day programming from 8:30am to 10:30am free of charge.
Why so cheap versus after school child care?
The Fit Kids after school program is just one branch of our studio. We offer group exercise, yoga, pilates, and personal training. This means that our operating costs are spread out across several different streams of income and we can offer Fit Kids at a lower price, with more resources to provide superior programming.
